Seeking Alpha: Silence Therapeutics A Quieter Name In RNAi

By now most biotech investors know about RNAi companies like Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (ALNY) and Isis Pharmaceuticals (ISIS), and many probably know Tekmira (TKMR) and Arrowhead Research (ARWR) as well. Alnylam and Isis have excited investors with the potential multiple billion-dollar drugs in their pipeline, while Tekmira and Arrowhead have solid delivery technologies and emerging therapeutic pipelines.

If you'll pardon the obvious pun, it has been a lot quieter where London-based Silence Therapeutics (OTCPK:SLNCF) (SLN.L) is concerned. This small biotech is barely followed on the Street and isn't exceedingly liquid even on its home stock exchange (the LSE). Silence's corporate history is shakier than many others and the company does not have a particularly thick book of clinical data in humans, but what the company does have is a three-pronged delivery platform that could, like Arrowhead's delivery technology, open up a wider range of treatment targets for RNAi therapy.
